We've featured a number of paint and modelling apps before (Sculptris, Cube Kingdom, Q-Block, Taro Paint), so here are three more to add to that list of useful free apps for quick art purposes.

Melly's ASCIIPaint (sample art featured above) is a Flixel-based paint program that allows users to draw ASCII characters on a plain black canvas, then saved as either a .TXT or .PNG file to be shared with others.

Adam 'Atomic' Saltsman's TrashPaint has been out for some time now, and this 5kb art application has proven to be effective for doing really quick sketches with basic brush strokes (sample art in the extended).

Last but not least is increpare's Monopoint, a monochromatic paint application from the creator of Opera Omnia and Ra Ra Racer. The dithering tool in this app is pretty fun to play around with, and you can even use hotkeys to switch between brush types and sizes quickly. Some art samples can be found here.
