KritaPortable_4.2.8.paf.exe from PortableApps automatically installs both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Krita:
32-bit PortableApps\KritaPortable\App\Krita
64-bit PortableApps\KritaPortable\App\Krita64

The disk size of the installed application is 636MB. The launcher program is KritaPortable.exe. It will detect the bit size of the Windows operating system and run the corresponding version of Krita. Those users that are confident that they will only need one bit size version can save disk storage by manually deleting the unneeded bit size.

Checker: a portable version of Paint.net is available, but untested and not something I would use: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=61988#p61988

Webfork is correct, there is a portable version. Worked fine for me on XP. I also like the knockoff of it called Pinta available for Linux. It's not full-featured yet, but it certainly works.
Off-topicP If you really want portable, put your favorite version of Linux including whatever programs you want on a USB stick and you've got an entire portable OS!

Download link still pointing to Pixia 6.00G rather than to 6.00H and gets a "not found" error.
