Does anyone know of or recommend a marker that is best suitable for using on top of a dry oil painting?

I don't think any kind of marker is suitable for using over an oil painting to be honest. Why would you want to do this?

I think there are some oil based markers that might do the job, just wanted to see what the popular opinion or suggested product might be

Your paintings are really nice, it would be a shame to potentially damage them with substances that are not tested or meant for use with oil paint.
In my very humble opinion acrylics are better suited to mixed media approaches. If you want a longer open time, Golden makes Golden Open paint which takes a few hours to dry. I personally haven't used them but people seem to like them a lot.

I just peaked at your blog, and am glad to see you are doing some plein air, that is my favorite way to paint, most all of my work is done that way.
you're right acrylics are suited for mixed media,
thanks for your opinions, and thank you for the nice words about the art

Don't use solvent based markers like permanent markers. The solvent will eat away at the paint layers.
