A group of artists and nature lovers enjoyed the sun, scenery and serenity of Moore Creek Caves Reserve on Saturday.
About 20 people took part in a Landcare working bee and some plein air painting, also working in media from drawing to photography.
Member Emma Stilts said the Tamworth Regional Landcare Association event had been “a real success, with over 20 people attending”.
“TRLA are hoping to attract an even larger crowd at the plein air event on this Sunday,” she said.
That will be held along the Peel River between Square Man Inn and the viaduct, in conjunction with National Tree Day, from 8.30am to 11.30am.
“Landcare would like to invite all artists and photographers to join in with us ... to record the day in their chosen medium; to share our expertise on our passions: Landcare, art and life,” TRLA co-ordinator Anne Michie said.
“We do not always have to be constantly working or grinding in order to be successful.
“We need to embrace rest, recovery and reflection as essential in a successful and happy life.
“Whether a practised artist or if you just want to give it a go, you are most welcome to join us.”
She said people should wear sturdy shoes and be sun safe.
