Crescent Towers Condominiums on Crescent Beach, Siesta Key, FL


Crescent Towers Condominiums on Crescent Beach, was painted in watercolor.

I spent a few years, between 2017-2019, painting approximately 35 Siesta Key beachfront condominiums and resorts. Out of that number, I have digital files that make it possible for me to offer 8″ x 10″ art prints and limited size gallery wrapped canvas prints of only 12 of these resorts.

I would take reference photos of the resorts and any additional elements that I wished to include. Then I would do a pencil drawing of the resort on a heavy weight watercolor paper. Within the next several days I would paint the resort in watercolor on my flat easel, while standing in front of the resort. Owners and guests would often come out to see what I was painting.

At night, I would take the painting to Kinko’s and make a handful of 11”x17” color prints. At home, I would mat them as 16” x 20” prints, back them with fomecore and then shrink wrap them. I would bring these, on my next trip to paint on the beach, as new additions to my collection. I offered them for $20. and they were quite popular. They are still hanging in many of the units in the resorts that I painted.

Most of my resort paintings have not been available for purchase until recently, through this website.

They were located at 1035 Seaside Dr, Siesta Key. It is with a heavy to announce that Crescent Towers is definitely closed forever. Demolition is scheduled for middle of April.
