I did this small study today to test out how watersoluble markers work on a smooth gessoed panel. It’s like working with a limited selection of watercolors. Also I discovered that ink just sits on top of the gesso. It does not stick or sink into it. So, if you apply a second layer, it tends to lift the previous layer instead of building up to a darker more opaque color. The color remains transparent and shows the texture and streaks in the gesso underneath.
