Chemistry (equilibrium)

In the following equilibrium system, N2O4(g) <--> NO2(g), what happens to the color of the gas if the forward reaction speeds up? What happens if the reverse reaction speeds up? What happens if the forward and reverse reaction happen at the same time?

NO2 is a reddish-brown color. N2O4 is colorless.
