Hmmm. I don't suppose there is any chance that this student may have been
more at ease at home without his smart a** friend sitting next to him? I have
a lot of trouble switching to the right side of my brain when I'm surrounded
by other people. When I am alone, I can work in an atmosphere that helps me
to become inspired, without distractions and time constraints. (Of course I
haven't seen that in my house since I had my 3 boys!) If this isn't the case,
perhaps you can suggest that he redraw the image for the canvas on a larger
area, so you can observe his work.
