Painting on TPanel

A program I'm working on needs the TPanel painted with a tiled image. I know I can add an TImage to it set to client, but is there a way to paint directly on to the TPanel surface. If so an Example Please on how this is done.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

TPanel does not have a canvas property, so the equivelent in Delphi would be to use a TImage instead of TPanel.  Then you can use the canvas property with its many image drawing methods.

Example:
image1.canvas.ellipse(1,1,20,20);
