Circle within a circle within a circle...etc...etc...down to 1 point

Circles must have a constant radius. No elipses please.

Please Include complete project (which includes form1) with screenshot.

Here is the "opposite" approach...starting in the middle and working our way out:
Public Class Form1
 
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Me.DoubleBuffered = True
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub Form1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles Me.Paint
        Static R As New Random
        Dim C As Color
        Dim center As New Point(Me.ClientRectangle.Width / 2, Me.ClientRectangle.Height / 2)
        Dim rc As Rectangle = New Rectangle(center.X, center.Y, 1, 1)
        While rc.Width < Me.ClientRectangle.Width AndAlso rc.Height < Me.ClientRectangle.Height
            C = Color.FromArgb(255, R.Next(0, 256), R.Next(0, 256), R.Next(0, 256))
            Using P As New Pen(C, 2)
                e.Graphics.DrawEllipse(P, rc)
            End Using
            rc.Inflate(1, 1)
        End While
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub Form1_SizeChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.SizeChanged
        Me.Refresh()
    End Sub
 
End Class

Open in new window

Nice! Is Inflate the only way to go about this?

Now if you were to start from the largest circle and go inward -- how would you approach this differently?

In other words is there a way to go from largest circle to smallest circle by using "square" retangle paths with smaller and smaller side lengths, etc. to guide the radius lengths downward until the path is 1 (and draw one point)?

I am interested in how to do this without inflate going from outermost circle to the innermost point
