From the docstring in circles - "Note that `c` should not be a single numeric RGB or RGBA sequence because that is indistinguishable from an array of values to be colormapped. (If you insist, use `color` instead). So a slight modification of your code seems to do what you want
fig = plt.figure(figsize=(5,3))
ax = fig.gca()
xvals = np.array([0,100])
yvals = np.array([0,0])
rvals = np.array([30,10])
rgb = np.array([[255, 0, 0], [0, 255, 0]])
circles(xvals, yvals, s=rvals, color=rgb / 255.) # use color instead of c and make 0. <= rgb <= 1.

> Thanks Scott! That certainly gets me closer. One question/problem I still have is that it doesn’t seem to like RGB as colors, in spite of the docs. I’ve attached a simple example.
