I don't think that's right - the palm should be facing away from the signer
at all times. It's indicating the river on the picture on a vertical TV
On the other hand, I now realise I should have used your "serpent" handshape
for the whole sign - the fingers are together rather than spread!

Try this (my rendition of Eastenders. I kept your handshape, but notice
that the orientation is sticking out (fingers are separated from the hand),
and though I'd keep the same number of hands, you need to show the rotation
as it moves over from one orientation to another. I ended it with a sea
serpent's mouth, like the sign (smile).

What a challenge!
Have I got everything the right way up?
Can it be written with fewer hands? :)
