Default How do I partially fill a plot area with color?

I have charted two learning curves... the curves are basically parallel with
one another... one is just slightly higher than/above the other. I want to
fill the area below the lower of the two curve with one color; the area above
the higher of the two curves with a second color; and leave the area between
the two curves without any color. How?

The color fill button on my toolbar fills the entire plot area with one color.

Thanks in advance, Elaine
