Sketching and sketchbooks

Sketching and sketchbooks - student project

I decided to look through my collection of markers and do some test swatches. I don't have any alcohol markers but tried what I had anyway. None of them were much for blending and a lot destroyed the paper when I did try to blend. I'll find a heavier paper. So I'm thinking I might use watercolor for this project but whatever I attempt, you'll see it here!

My marker challenge. I had one grey, two blacks, and a white gel pen. I also drew my very favorite water bottle. I didn't have much control over the brush markers. I would like to think it would have been a bit neater if I had nibs.
