If pts is a list of ordered pairs and colors is a list of GRBColor
expressions of the same length, then with

Transpose[{colors,Map[Point,pts]}]//Graphics//Show

you should see what you're looking for

Or if you want the lines of different color, try something like

Transpose[{Rest[colors],Map[Point,Partition[pts,2,1]]}]//Graphics//Show

(I'm using Rest here since Length[Partition[pts,2,1]] =Length[pts]-1 )
