A GraphicsPath as defined in Microsoft documentation:
A path may be composed of any number of figures (subpaths). Each figure is either composed of a sequence of connected lines and curves or a geometric shape primitive. The starting point of a figure is the first point in the sequence of connected lines and curves. The ending point is the last point in the sequence. The starting and ending points of a geometric shape primitive are defined by the primitive specification.

A figure that consists of a sequence of connected lines and curves (whose starting and ending points may be coincident) is an open figure, unless it is closed explicitly. A figure can be closed explicitly, by using the CloseFigure method, which closes the current figure by connecting a line from the ending point to the starting point. A figure that consists of a geometric shape primitive is a closed figure.
You can find a simple example at the bottom of this web page [here].

The Invalidates method of a control causes the entire surface of the control to be redrawn.
