I guess you use BitBlt in WM_PAINT message handler. It should be something like this:

if ( m_bShowImage )       // some flag
    BitBlt ...

To clear imge from any place use:

m_bShowImage = FALSE;
Invalidate();
UpdateWindow();

Now WM_PAINT is called again, but BitBlt is not called, picture control remains empty.

No, I have used Bitblt in a menu item handler function. I have drawn the image to picture control by getting its window handler using GetDlgItem function.

All drawing code should be inside of WM_PAINT message handler. In menu handler you can load image and keep it in some class member. After this invalidate window, and is redrawn according to current program state.
If you draw inside of menu handler, minimise and restore the window and you can see picture disappears.
