There is undoubtedly a more efficient way to do this, but give this a shot:

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

x = np.arange(0, 10.5, 0.5)
y = -3.0*x + 0.5*x**2

color_list = ['FireBrick', 'Orange', 'DarkGreen', 'DarkBlue', 'Indigo']
limits = np.arange(0, 11, 2)
fig, ax1 = plt.subplots()
for n, color in enumerate(color_list):
   lower = np.where(x >= limits[n])[0]
   upper = np.where(x <= limits[n+1])[0]
   index = np.intersect1d(lower, upper)
   ax1.plot(x[index], y[index], linestyle='-', color=color, linewidth=2)

plt.show()

HTH,

Alternatively, you could replace the loop above with::

    indexes = np.searchsorted(x, limits)
    # add 1 to end index so that segments overlap
    for i0, i1, color in zip(indexes[:-1], indexes[1:]+1, color_list):
        ax1.plot(x[i0:i1], y[i0:i1], linestyle='-', color=color, linewidth=2)

This is not much different than Paul's example---just whatever you find more readable.
