Rather, it’s a matter of watercolors having a much more limited tonal range

near as black as the blackest black you can get from a quality inkjet
print…and displays have a much greater dynamic range than prints. Were the
artist starting from scratch working on the display, she’d use the full
dynamic range of the display; she wants to see her watercolors magically
transformed into what she would have done in the digital

Understod, Ben...but if she's used to seeing a limited tonal range working with
the original watercolours and your workflow is watertight (I don't doubt that,
btw), she must have seen something that's altered her expectation/perception of
what the image looks like on a screen...? Or is she looking at images on a
non-colour managed display elsewhere?

kind regards
