Dim bmp as Bitmap
Dim g as Graphics

bmp = new Bitmap(width, height, PixelFormat.Format24bppRgb)
g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp)

' draw in graphics anything you need, for example:
Dim blueBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Blue)
g.FillRectangle(blueBrush, 0, 0, width, height)

blueBrush.Dispose()
g.Dispose()

' use bmp

If you just want a solid color as your bitmap background you can do this:

Dim bmp as Bitmap
Dim g as Graphics

bmp = new Bitmap(width, height, PixelFormat.Format24bppRgb)
g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp)

g.Clear(Color.Black)   '<<<<< Sets all the pixels in the bitmap to the color specified.

g.Dispose()

' use your bitmap here...
