Object: Gradual color fill, tied to movement

I'm quite new to AE and as an exercise I try to mimic things I see in explainervideo's.
In this video from The Economist ( at 2:37 minutes we can see how the grey sand is being colored in by a blue hue from left to right.
I'm a bit at a loss as to how to get this effect.

I suspect i need to create some kind of new layer or identical layer and move this by keyframing? But in my head this would not be as smooth as it seems in the video.
Keyframing of the hue/saturation is not an option, because it ignores the movement displayed in the video...
Could someone help me out?

Thanks a lot!
