Starting with just a color palette

I have a piece I want to do in mixed media, but I only know the color palette so far. Well, just the dominant color, really. I don't know how to build a design from there up. Does anyone have suggestions for brainstorming composition from there?

Re: Starting with just a color palette

what's the pallet ?
what's the content?
simple or complex?
what's your level of competence?
patience?
genre?
size?
media(s)?

start with:
centre of interest and the rule of thirds

Re: Starting with just a color palette

So you are saying, so far, I want an Orange painting (or whatever color you want.)

What medias do you want to mix? That might be another way to work it.
