What about, when you create your QLabel, doing this...


The "visually jarring" things you are seeing are caused by the background repainting before the rest of the image.
So, the background repaints to background color, then your label pixmap is drawn over that.  By not repainting the background, your pixmap will be redrawn without first being cleared.  This can have strange side-effects, though, if the pixmap is accompanied by text... you may have to modify the paintEvent so that it clears the text area by hand.
