Prepare 3 marker pens of same hue but different values. Here we choose blue. Draw the darkest, then the medium darkest, and the lightest the last. And we must be very quick, paint another before the previous is dry, thus the gradation will be smooth and not sharp.

Gradation of Different Hues

Prepare 2 markers pens of different hues. We try light yellow and orange this time. Draw light yellow first on the paper and quickly draw orange halfway on it before it dries. Then use the light yellow one to blend to left and right from the overlapping part to create smooth and even gradation.
