Pastel and Chalk

Snook Nook
6" x 8"
Sometimes, it's a pleasure to sit on a bench in the shade with a sketchbook and a tiny box of Nupastels and scribble.   I like to feel inconspicuous when I'm working outside.  If I were writing in a notebook, no one would come over and look over my shoulder.  But start drawing and it attracts people like flies.  One man commented, "Oh, you're just using chalk."  I had to explain that pastel and chalk are not the same thing.  Pastels are pigment with binder and chalk is well, chalk with dyes that fade.  Next time, I need to find a better place to hide.
