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.
