There is a rule about light that many painters follow, that is, if a subject is lit with a "warm" light then the shadow light will usually appear "cool" and vice versa. Sometimes it's difficult to see this color relationship. When the light in the scene is subtle, much like in the "cows" painting I did, it's hardly noticeable but when there is a strong light it's very obvious like in this painting. It's really amazing just how blue the shadow of the tangerine appears.
