White Cup with Gold and Blue

I like the shadow colors on the cup - blue and lavender with yellow reflections. Putting the subject matter at eye level flattens the drawing.  It's more difficult to draw a convincing three dimensional shape.  At the horizon line, a circular saucer becomes a straight line, but by the time your eye travels to the top of the cup, there is a subtle curve.
