I'm not sure why my pastel paintings seem so different from my oil paintings but they are.  Is it because pastel's include more "drawing" sometimes?  I love oil but it is much more of a struggle for me when doing landscapes or veggie/fruit-scapes!  Anyway I've been trying to do some of each this July and learning from it all.
