Hi Ross,
See if this will do what you want:


What I have done is to start with five base colors and vary saturation 
and brightness sort of orthogonally. I just did this one by guess and by 
gosh and only had to change one color. You don't have to use 
color2D.matplot, but it is easy to compare the colors if they are in a 
rectangular block.
