Here is description of mypaint.

Mypaint is a fast and easy/simple painter app focused on the painter, so you can only focus on the art and not the program itself. Currently MyPaint does not have a layer system, also mypaint is using pygtk with C extensions.

One of the interesting feature is that the width of the brush increse’s with the speed of the stroke.

My personal experience with the application was that the appllication does not have too many functionalities but is really very easy to use. Just select the brush and use it after invoking it. Here are some examples of the kind of effects that you can see with mypaint.

On the right hand side is the toolbar for selecting the brush and the effect is displayed with the brush selected. Quite simple to use.

Initial window:
<a href=""><img src="" alt="mypaint Screenshot" title="mypaint Screenshot" width="300" height="181" class="size-medium wp-image-1276" />

Other screenshots:
<a href=""><img src="" alt="blur" title="blur" width="150" height="150" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-1278" />

<a href=""><img src="" alt="just beautiful" title="just beautiful" width="150" height="150" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-1277" />

<a href=""><img src="" alt="text with ink" title="text with ink" width="150" height="150" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-1279" />

<a href=""><img src="" alt="Simply awesome stroke" title="Simply awesome stroke" width="150" height="150" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-1280" />

<a href=""><img src="" alt="Random stroke " title="Random stroke " width="150" height="150" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-1281" />

Watch out for some more screen-shots in coming days.
