Covers based on paintings
In March 1973 Barks submitted the last piece of work made especially for Western Publishing: the script for HDL 25/1 (»Captains Outrageous«). However, he continued to sell 3 more cover ideas to Western which actually were preliminary sketches for his oil paintings. In 1985 he created a cover based on one of his paintings for the Carl Barks Library.
»Meanest Colt in the West«
An early feeling-around sketch for an oil painting which finally became »Webfoot Tenderfoot«.
