You could pass a pointer to the canvas to the procedure...

type
  PCanvas = ^Canvas;

procedure Draw (i_pCanvas: PCanvas);
begin
   ...
   i_pCanvas^.Method(...);
   ...
end;

var
  cv: PCanvas;
begin
  pcv := @Form1.Canvas;
  Draw(pcv);
end;

Or something like this...test this out before grading me.
If you have further questions, feel free to comment.

It looks like an elegant solution, yet Delphi won't swallow the type-declaration. On PCanvas=^canvas it replies Undeclared Identifier:'canvas'. What did I do wrong?

My mistake...I apologize...

type
   PCanvas = ^TCanvas;

I made a simple mistake in the declaration...should be TCanvas...not Canvas.  Sorry.

Oops...also...

  cv: PCanvas;

should be

  pcv: PCanvas;

It's very simple:

procedure(x,y:integer;wCanvas:TCanvas);

begin
  wcanvas.pixels[x,y]:=.....
end;

works just fine.
