If you just want to do this rarely you often don't need a 
extra scheme, most objects have a color option, as is 
illustrated in the example below:

*---------------------- begin example -------------------
sysuse auto, clear
twoway scatter mpg weight if make != "Subaru" || ///
       scatter mpg weight if make == "Subaru" ,  ///
	   mcolor(red) scheme(s2mono)
*---------------------- end example ----------------------
(For more on examples I sent to the Statalist see: )

Vince Wiggins gave a talk on how to create your own scheme
at the 2006 UK Stata Users' meeting. This might be useful
when you want to use this many times. The materials of 
that talk can be found here:
