  1. Whoooa this is disturbing

  2. owned by Kate Bush, i believe

  3. That would be correct, tints of ink. (;

  4. According to the book “Under the Ivy: The Life and Music of Kate Bush” by Graeme Thomson (2015 edition), she owns this painting. It’s interesting how the cheerful color palette belies the disturbing message of death by drowning, but the flesh-and-blood woman is represented by a cracked doll. I’d love to see a clearer photo of this painting.
