Taken directly from http://gtk.org/tutorial/c24.html:
"... GTK is built on top of GDK (GIMP Drawing Kit) which is basically
a wrapper around the low-level functions for accessing the underlying
windowing functions (Xlib in the case of the X windows system), and
gdk-pixbuf, a library for client-side image manipulation."

To mix two images you can use the Composite method on a Gdk.Pixbuf.
Attach is a sample showing this and how drawing can be made on a
Drawable. It's pretty low level, so using System.Drawing with a
DrawingArea might be easier (and there are many tutorials available on
that topic).

The docs at http://gtk.org/api/ has all the details on Gdk and Gtk.
