You override the OnPaint event, which provides you PaintEventArgs and within this you can use PaintEventArgs.Graphics.

Using the the Graphics object you can use methods such as DrawLine() and DrawPolygon.
protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
   Graphics g = e.Graphics;
   //Draw your line and triangle here!
}

Here's a simple example:
protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    Point bottomCorner = new Point(this.ClientRectangle.Left, this.ClientRectangle.Bottom);
    Point endPoint = new Point(this.ClientRectangle.Width / 2, this.ClientRectangle.Height / 2);
    Point[] triangle = new Point[3];

    triangle[0] = endPoint;
    triangle[1] = new Point(endPoint.X - 15, endPoint.Y);
    triangle[2] = new Point(endPoint.X, endPoint.Y + 15);
    e.Graphics.DrawLine(Pens.Black, bottomCorner, endPoint);
    e.Graphics.FillPolygon(Brushes.Black, triangle);

    base.OnPaint(e);
}
