Like anything that can be made visible on a canvas, color is a painter's tool. A tool is better as it becomes more complex and flexible. If paintings are going to be made which push color forward to be seen for itself or contrived as content, then I feel that the painters doing them should have some knowledge of color theory, and more important, easy access to any color in a quickly usable form.
