A Scottish murder mystery

I should do a before or after .  Some heads go through heavy surgery. These 2 heads started out so different.  When I unwrapped them yesterday they had eyes in different places, another hairstyle, face shape, lip position.....some heads are right from the start but not these two. 

I like how the work or parts of it gather certain associations as I make.  The repetition and painting of the pattern on the second head is bound up with a Radio 4 Scottish murder mystery play! So although it's only lines it has in it a storm, a murderous gambling session, a confusion of characters, a dark night and the Scottish coast!
