1. Open up GIMP. Click "File" menu then "New". And use 600 width and 600 height.

2. Click on foreground color, pick any color you like. Here we're just using blue. Then click and drag the foreground color onto image to fill it with blue.

6. Now we're left with just the sphere on transparency. Choose menu "File", then "Export As..." to export this image as a png and we have something like the below.
