Simplest way to draw a single pixel on Xamarin Forms ContentPage?

maybe with SkiaSharp (in Xamarin Forms) @mattleibow?
Or can i detect touch event and draw a BoxView 1x1? (but i hope drawing 500 boxview will decrease app performance?).
I use SignaturePad, but i have to do it in UWP, and this component doesn't support it.

Thank you for any suggest!

    Hi @LuiginoDeTogni SkiaSharp may be what you are looking for. We just release a new set of NuGets with all sorts of views and layers. By adding SkiaSharp.Views.Forms (or SkiaSharp.Views), you can easily add a full hardware accelerated canvas into your app. This has many features, such as DrawPoint, DrawLine, DrawPath, DrawBitmap and even a whole bunch of extra bits that allow you to draw almost anything in 2D. Be sure to check out our samples for more examples
