Odari creates a work of art directly influenced by nature, his mountains of hope Ibirunga scene painting predominantly utilizes organic shapes, the hilly landscape has irregular often curving or rounded forms as seen in the vegetation and sky. The few bamboo trees seen bear long curving branches. Beneath the trees lie numerous green round shrubs and wildflowers. The clouds are ambiguous, constantly morphing into new shapes. Odaris’ piece is an example of the technique “atmospheric perspective” , a nonlinear means for indicating an illusion of depth. He subtly changes color, value and detail to provide a real sense of the tropical climate. Tones of pale-yellow bamboo trees unite the sky with the foreground evoking a humid, hazy atmosphere Musanze is notorious for. The dominant subject of the composition is the curving palm trees in the left center. The colors used in odaris’ painting are mostly cool colors, green vegetation with a blue sky.
