Best settings for reproducing watercolor art work with A7r ?

I am using my A7r to photograph some of my paintings ( up to76x56 cms.) as a lower quality but possible acceptable alternative to professional scanning at $100 per scan.
This is not for museum use but I want the most accurate reproduction of color I can achieve.
Workflow is set up camera squarely with strobe and softbox each side of camera aimed at center.
Grey card in shot at border for point white balance setting in Image Data Converter.(IDC)

Decided on canon 85 F1.2 lens instead of Zeiss 1,8/55 as it seemed to give less vignetting.
To get the most accurate reproduction using IDC... should I use Neutral for creative style?
Looks dull on monitor but it's calibration is not perfect.
Also should I turn off D-Range optimiser?
Have shot in sRGB and will be using professional lab matte printing.
Any hints appreciated.
