Plasticine model of my sculpture at the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships 2019

My ten tonne pile of sand.

The beginning is always the hardest part.

Starting to take shape. I love it when the sculpture begins to look like my drawing.

More detail. One day down , one and a half days to go.

Close up of the inventor of the mechanical fish sub.

Different lighting gives the sand a different colour

The Two Peters! This was the first year the competition included a team section .Though each sculptor created their own sculpture , together the sculptures should tell one story. So my sculpture was of a an old world adventurer/inventor in his mechanical (steam punk style) submarine beginning his "ODYSSEY"exploring the sea depths. (Note the porthole)

 Peter's sculpture continues the story by taking a view from the inside or the sub looking out through the porthole into the depths. so glad we went with the steampunk idea. We won first prize in the team section !! Peter did well to finish as the top front part of the porthole collapsed on the second day. But he kept his cool and repaired it to perfection !
