Hi Klandestineone. What you're describing happens often but not always - a lot depends on how you're trying to depict the reflected or secondary light sources, and a lot of that depends on the color of the surrounding objects that are reflecting that light. At least that's the way I think of it. I wouldn't think of the warm/cool juxtaposition as a rule, but maybe more of a compositional device that often works well, or a way of livening up the chroma or temperature variety in the shadows.
