Drawing Check Marks

I'm an educator and use Onenote for my class notebooks. I would like to use my Mac trackpad and my finger to draw check marks, circles etc. to evaluate work. I want to get rid of the stylus and separate trackpad I presently use. Using the Mac trackpad I have to click and hold and then using another finger draw. This is cumbersome and limiting. I haven't been able to simulate or find how to do this using BTT, which is the end goal. Any help is appreciated.
