October 2018 Art Challenge: Fall Fun!

This October 2018 we’re celebrating the fun things you find in fall with bits of Halloween as well! This Doodlewash art challenge is open to anyone who wants to participate with watercolor painting and/or simply pencil or pen & ink drawings as well!* Just add the hashtag #doodlewashOctober2018 when you post on all your social networks, and if you also use lovely watercolor add the #WorldWatercolorGroup hashtag as well so we can find you and link to your lovely watercolors!

*Participating in Inktober 2018? Awesome! Then simply add the tag #doodlewashOctober2018 when you post and share what you make with us!

And please DO join us here in Doodlewash Club to post your ink drawings as well! Simply log in to Doodlewash.com to post. (yep, it’s free!) Just a friendly reminder that World Watercolor Group on Facebook is still only for posting watercolor, of course.


While I know it’s not autumn in all parts of the world, this month is really just a collection of everyday, simple things that are enjoyed the world over! Things we can all appreciate like apples and owls, and the fun icons that appear as Halloween arrives. As a kid I always loved this time of year, mostly because it seemed like people came together more and paused to enjoy the simple little things in life. Sure, where I lived, jumping in a pile of leaves was a definite highlight, but even seeing the warm glow of candles was a wonderful thing!
