The drawing tools available in the main panel. Look for the specific icons I've marked, not the location - your GIMP panel may be layed out differently than mine.
The available drawing tools are "pencil," "brush," "ink," and "airbrush." There's also an eraser, the gradient tool (not indicated on the above picture - although the active gradient is), and "bucket fill" which we saw previously. Each has special properties. I like the ink tool, which is speed-sensitive: it narrows as you move the pointer faster. Let's start with that one. Choose a colour: do this by clicking on the foreground colour to get the "Color Selection" dialogue.
