This is purely experimental and I haven't seen anyone recommending these 2 media - colored pencil and watercolors.
I started with Prismacolor pencils which didn't have the intensity I wanted for the background so in a fit of madness I broke out the watercolors and splashed them around the painting. I've no idea if it will last but it got the drama I was looking for.

Not a big fan of Halloween, so I did this small size to use for a card.

MaryLou and Brain i think you entries are great. 
Australia does celebrate Halloween in most places, but mainly only the children going trick or treat during the daylight hours.

This is my scary/spooky submission for the Oktober Challenge. Done with water colour with lines with pen and ink. Got some inspirations while going through some scary photos. I sure would not want to meet such a nun in real! 😱🎃
I put away the monster man. He was a bit too repulsive.

 :eek: Yikes.... that is too reminiscent of one of the nuns who taught at the Catholic school. Especially the boys didn't like her because she would check their fingernails and give them a rap on the knuckles if they weren't clean enough.  :run: My girlfriend Darlene used to have us howling with laughter with stories about her adventures growing up in a convent.

Well done Gita, thanks for bringing those memories back... and people thought I was nuts growing up!  :2funny:

Wow Gita she's creepy. I too have memories of nuns at primary school. In grade 6 we had a nun named Sister Kevin we called her Pinocchio cause we said her nose grew as she tried to stick her nose into everyone's business

Gita, this is spooky!  But I was laughing at Val and Teresa's comments.  I am sure this will remind lots of folks about a nun they once knew!   :2funny:

 :2funny:👻☠️👽 😬 Theresa and Val. This nun can be really get angry and punish even if there’s a tiniest reason to do so without blinking an eyelash.
