movement in LIQUID

Here is my attempt to get the repeated motion.  I still put the wave in as there must be a way to show that the overall effect is of a wave, even if the arms don't move side to side, it's more of an order of movement wave. 

liquid flowing matter, fluid that is not gas.

 After reading through all these posts and watching the video, there still seems to be something missing in your writing Val, a piece of information that tells me somehow NOT to move the entire, interconnected elbow, wrist, finger formation back to its starting place, but to flex the wrists in order to re-start the motion.  If I can figure out how to add video, I will try to show you what I mean.
