Types of Markers You Can Use to Draw a Sunset
There is no limit on the type of markers you can use to draw your sunset. You can use washable markers, alcohol-based markers, water-based markers, permanent markers, dry-erase markers, brush markers, and even paint markers.
However, we do not highly recommend Sharpies, as they tend to bleed through paper. It is also hard to color nicely with them. You will almost get streaky strokes.
Dry erase markers are also not great, as they only have a few colors to choose from. You may not get the appropriate colors for an authentic sunset.
