Painting Challenge: Inktober 2022

***UPDATED with prize announcement below

Jake Parker created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

Yes, we will still do weekly challenges.  This is an extra month-long challenge.  🙂

Participate in Inktober.     

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #inktober2022

Deadline November 2, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

You can do one prompt, some prompts, or all all of them.  It doesn’t matter.   It’s a fun challenge that helps you to get into daily drawing practice.   You can use ink or watercolor, or both!  The goal is to practice drawing — and to have fun!


What is the prize?   

Here is the collection of goodies that one person will receive:



* *   *

* these items are shown on Amazon in sets.   The winner will not receive the entire set, and will receive: 2 blackwing pencils, one Artistro white paint pen, 3 UniPin fineliners (black, dark gray, light gray).

Also, the wooden fountain pen/travel watercolor brush set in the photo below was not on Amazon but can be found here.  It is awesome!  Double-ended travel brush!

Here is a photo of all the goodies!
