markerfacecolor in legend

Hi,

I would like to have a different marker facecolor in the legend that in
the plot. Is there any way to change this color?

In more detail my problem is the following. I plotted 6 dataset. They
are divided in 2 groups; one with blue and the other with red color.
In each group I have used 3 different markers. I have annotated the
meaning of the color in the plot, so I don't need a legend with 6 lines.
I only need 3, but I would like that the markers in this plot will be
empty (markerfacecolor=white). Is it possible?

Best regards,

Zunbeltz

One option would be to use a proxy artist, an artist with properties you want.
