```Hi Tasha,
I may be right off the track, but you could plot RGB proportions on a
3D plot. The easiest way I can think if would be to convert your 0-255
values to proportions:

249 158 37 56.311
249 158 68 4.319
249 158 98 0.058
249 128 7 13.965
249 128 37 12.87
188 128 37 0.029
249 128 68 0.161
188 128 68 0.015
188 98 7 0.029
219 128 7 2.773
219 128 37 2.583
188 98 68 0.058
219 128 68 0.525
249 188 37 0.876
249 188 68 1.08
219 98 7 0.482
249 188 98 0.015
rgb_prop\$Red<-rgb_prop\$Red/255
rgb_prop\$Green<-rgb_prop\$Green/255
rgb_prop\$Blue<-rgb_prop\$Blue/255
library(scatterplot3d)
scatterplot3d(rgb_prop[,1:3],cex.symbols=sqrt(rgb_prop[,4]),
color=rgb(rgb_prop[,1],rgb_prop[,2],rgb_prop[,3]),pch=19)

then plot the RGB values on a 3D scatterplot. I have included
arguments to make the symbols the actual RGB colors that you specify
and their size proportional to the square root of the percentages.
