“Just Lily” Watercolor On 140 lbs Arches Paper. 24″x18″ by Neela Pushparaj.

Neela’s Landscapes and Abstracts showcase the same vibrant colors and textures as her Florals. She incorporates brush strokes and movement to create various surfaces, and her use of light and color captures an ethereal beauty. Her Landscapes are full of blooms and splashes that cover her canvases with rich colors and vibrant displays. Her creations spark the imagination, taking the viewer through mystical dreamscapes. Neela is an expert at creating unique, beautiful paintings that can transport you to another realm.

When creating her art, Neela paints her florals by wetting the surface and dropping colors on the wet blank paper, Aquaboard, or canvas. Then, as the colors spread and mingle, she lets them dry before looking for shapes and details.

Neela creates her compositions spontaneously and often finishes the painting with a few final touch-ups. She enjoys allowing the colors to move freely and develop their forms, capturing the light and atmosphere of her pieces. The results are mystical and natural, full of movement and life.

It’s no wonder her work has become so popular, as her paintings evoke a sense of awe and wonder that resonates with viewers worldwide. Neela also strives to keep her artwork accessible, including offering limited edition prints of some of her original works. These prints allow collectors to have a piece of her artwork. Her passion and dedication to her craft show through in each of her vibrant creations.

What makes her paintings particularly special is how she captures nature’s beauty and energy, something that brings people together from all walks of life. Every aspect of her work, from color, texture, line, and form, helps bring to life stories about nature that we can all appreciate and relate to. Neela also experiments with other mediums, such as pen and acrylics, to continually challenge herself and expand her repertoire. Additionally, Neela inspires other artists through tutorials and exhibitions.
