    Of course. Unfortunately, your questions is like, "Can I use eggs in a kitchen?". You will need to be far more specific.

    No No don't start with Open GL. Search your MSDN library for keywords like LineTo, dc , Cdc , CreateBrush, BitBlt.

    Why not use OpenGL?

    I agree with barjor. With an understanding of the basics of Windows graphics you can do a lot, including make a reasoned choice as which direction you want to go viz a more sophisticated tool.

    OpenGL is not universally applauded, nor indeed, is DirectX, (etc. etc.). Both will allow you draw a line on a screen and the like, but at this point, we, and indeed I suspect the original questioner, do not know where he wants to be going in the longer term.

    Loading yourself with a lot of baggage early, when it may well be the wrong baggage, is always a bad idea.

    There are links to tutorials on basic graphics in the FAQ.

    Open GL is perfectly cool and I love working with it but you shouldn't run before you can walk.
