  • Ellipses
  • Text: plain or markdown/HTML formatted text

Create brushes:

  • Solid
  • Gradient

  • Image

Stroke shape outlines/between points using a pen or brush, or just paint on each point position.

Use single brushes or multi-brushes.

Fill shapes using solid colors, patterns or textures.
