Jeff Hein just completed the painting “Christ Heals the Multitude” (below) for a christian temple in Honduras. All of the figures were painted from life – no photography was involved. Jeff had each of the models come in at different scheduled times (one of which is his eight year old son), often posing with a mannequin stand-in for Christ, as to paint them in the correct context. Eventually, Jeff and his assistants buoyed mannequins for the front eight figures, and dressed them accordingly. From there, he was able to arrange the clothing according to aesthetic appeal as well as with accuracy, for the painting. Those around Jeff and his work have expressed that it was an incredible learning experience it has been to watch Jeff complete this painting, and learn from his process.
