If you'd really like to explore the chemistry of paints, I would suggest 
polymer science.  Paints are really just colored polymeric dispersions in 
water.  The most critical components being pigment and polymer resin.  
Polymer science will teach some optical properties of films, but to learn 
more about how color and light operates, you'll need to focus on one of 
the analytical techniques used to study films: spectroscopy (The science 
of how materials interact with light of different wavelengths).
