Fleeing the Gilded Man
(#2-2012)   20x16 oil on Masonite

This painting is based on a drawing that Barks completed sometime in the 1970s. The Barks estate turned up a sheet of Masonite with the drawing of the ducks already transferred to it, but
for some reason Barks never completed the painting. In the 1990s Barks did complete a color-pencil drawing based on the abandoned painting. My version keeps the characters from his composition but I've added a lot of detail to the foreground to serve as a framing device for the action, including a couple of critters based on drawings from Donald Duck FC No. 422, which the painting is based on.
