[NEW VIDEO] Colored Pencil Demo - Rose in Mug Step 2: Coloring the Mug

I finally found some time to do my colored pencil paintings, particularly this one, titled, 'Rose in Mug'. So, in continuation of my first video demo on how I started this painting, I recorded step 2, coloring the mug.
I follow simple steps in coloring the mug a solid, dark black.  Instead of using just three pencils, I used a fourth one to create the shine on the mug.  Watch the demo on how I do it!
Also, you might notice the uneven color of the mug on the second layer, the existing color and the new color that I've just layered.

This is due to the wax from the wax-based colored pencil that covered the surface. To remove it, simply take the tissue paper and gently, rub the entire surface.

FYI: I added a couple of useful tips on working with colored pencils in this video. 
I hope this will assist colored pencil newbies and seasoned veterans as well.
