    I would really appreciate a little feedback on my attempt at a solution. Thanks in advance!

    Is your solution incorrect? Is there a bending moment the the left of R1?

    I am not a civil engineer but I read that the bending moment is the integral of the sheer force diagram. It looks like this is what you have done. I see there is a bending moment to the left of R1 due to the loading of the beam.

    I checked your numbers up to M3 and I think you are doing good.
