This is my first concerted effort sketch at the EP with touch ups added after the session. Your critiques are sought in an effort to improve my skills!

Patrick, fine sketch! My first sketches were not half that good... I hope to see more of your hand.
But I see red in M81. Did you really saw color?

No. Probably just an artifact from the rendering process. I finished the negative with grey, green and black pencil.

Thank you for the feedback!

You can easily solve the problem to change the colors in "grey scale".
