I thought we could give the shadows a break and add some colours. I used Cadmium Red Light for the red flowers and Permanent Rose for the pink ones. You could use any colour you wanted for these as they are just painted onto the teacups anyway. The main idea is to give the cups shape by curving the flowers accordingly and shading the flowers away from the light source. I just added a bit of Cobalt to the appropriate colours to make the darker shade.
