Which widget to use for a pixel art editor?

I am exploring some functionalities of Qt I never used. I am currently developing a pixel art editor but I do not know which widget is the best for 2D drawing. I have considered to create a widget and embed an OpenGL context inside it.
Based on your experiences, what is the best way to draw 2D graphics with Qt?
Thanks for your answers.

A regular QWidget should do just fine. Override the paintEvent, create a QPainter instance and start drawing.
QT comes with a few painting examples you can look at.
Found an open-source qt paint app you can check out too:

Thanks, I already checked the examples. I will go for a QWidget and look for GL solutions if I encounter a problem (I want to be able to apply convolution matrices, paths for shifting colors for instance, ...).
