Coloring problem

Is there a way to stop things like this from happening? i think it looks like its too abrupt. I already tried finding a color halfway between the two, but there doesn't seem to be a logical halfway between brown and blue.

Example 2: Using of Average Vertex Colours function.

Single-coloured polygons:

Some shading:

Select wanted vertex:

Press Ctrl+G or PolyWorks Main menu=>Edit=>Average Vertex Colours. You'll got something like this:

Now it's very difficult to find the border between colours:
