You could create boolean fields for every color and put those rules in the view definition, like:

from openerp import models, fields, api

class module_example(models.Model):

_name = 'module.example'

blue = fields.Boolean('Blue')

pink = fields.Boolean('Pink')

yellow = fields.Boolean('Yellow')

and in the xml:

<record id="module_example_form" model="ir.ui.view">

<field name="name">myquality list</field>

<field name="model">myquality.myquality</field>

<field name="arch" type="xml">



<field name="blue" attrs="{'invisible': [('pink','=',True),('yellow','=',True)]}"/>

<field name="pink" attrs="{'invisible': [('blue','=',True),('yellow','=',True)]}"/>

<field name="yellow" attrs="{'invisible': [('pink','=',True),('blue','=',True)]}"/>
