“The Jungle Outside”: Exploring and Creating from Nature with Danielle Boodoo-Fortune

Our Caribbean landscape is an artist’s dream — we challenge you to walk outside and see what colours, textures, shapes and size materials you can find just a stone’s throw from your window! In this video tutorial, artist Danielle Boodoo-Fortune, the illustrator of Joanne C. Hillhouse’s children’s book The Jungle Outside (Collins Big Cat), shows us how to create art inspired by our lush tropical environment.
