Love to cheat.

Vector simplication with some contrast enhancements and Impressionist to boot. Attached is a lower quality crop of the rendering. The complete higher quality rendering can be found here.

Here is my go at it...

I am in Minnesota so the weather here is a cool 27 degrees above zero and freezing.

Thank you Swampy and Bob Mc, Good point/tip you made Bob, to stand away from your screen and look.
My work flow is as follows ( quite easy i think for the outcome)

open and duplicate
filter >artistic> cut out settings 4, 4, 2 set blendmode to luminosity
duplicate layer
Filter > artistic> dry brush settings 2 8 1 set blendmode to screen
Flatten image
Filter> brush strokes > crosshatch settings 11, 6 ,1
then adjust colour settings to taste.

Hope this helps , the last filter (not 100% sure of settings) can be swapped for any other just experiment ,

Reduced the colours to 24 and then created a charcoal and chalk filtered overlay, overlaid in luminosity mode
