Stubborn Student

I am running an evening class. I have set a non figurative mark making exercise but the students have not understood my instructions. One young woman has brought some expensive paper and is unwilling to use it for what she regards as a scribbling exercise. She finds a small corner of her notepad to doodle on. I instruct her to use her good paper. She reluctantly does as she is bid but draws an immaculate but stilted image of a candle on a grand piano.
