There is a separate module for the canvas stuff, called qtcanvas.

Also you could paint onto an ordinary QWidget.

Note that the Canvas ported to Qt4 is not included in Qt4.1, it's a

As far as painting goes: Phil claims that PyQt4 supports Qt4.1, so I
guess you can use all the fancy new stuff like Gradients... with PyQt4.
