Cecily Young is a member of the Honiton Art Society and today she and fellow artists were visiting the Sanctuary to paint and sketch donkeys.
It was the Society's first visit to the Sanctuary. Cecily said "It's different to the other places we've been to paint animals before. There's all the facilities you need and the scenery is outstanding".
The Society itself organises five days out in the summer for its members to visit. Each year they hold an exhibition of their paintings and this year's will be held in the Mackarness Hall, Honiton on 8th September 2008.
Cecily has been drawing and painting all her life and was previously a picture restorer before retiring and enjoying her life-long hobby.
